Our neighbours never eat breakfast. Other than a coffee. Mid morning is some bread with oil on it while they stop for a smoke while doing the garden, lunch is just some tomatoes from the garden and some fresh bread, dinner could be anything from squid of small fishes (depending if the fish man has been round) to a stew of vegetables and or meat. Sometimes my neighbours will then wander up to the village square to gossip and later might order a small plate of lamb or liver or keftedes or something else, just to go with a drink.
The children when they were young just had a glass of Coke or Fanta, sometimes a snatched piece of cake or bread as they rushed out the door to catch the school bus, they would then nip into the bakery or minimarket nearest their school and buy a pitta of some sort. Stand outside any school and watch the kids arriveing munching on something wrapped in paper.
The same happens when they leave school to catch the bus home.
Stews containing not much meat, but plenty of pulses, vegetables etc; are common, pasta and rice in all their forms, dried beans of all kinds are also popular staples kept in the larder.
And of course when ever possible fish is available from the fish man calling round the villages, not as frequently as the vegetable man, but non the less important.
Personally I wonder if the advantages of the Mediterranean Diet arre'nt a little one sided, do people around the Med live longer on average?
